My little tribute to a legend
OMG! I now realise this was actually a few weeks ago, but i've only jus heard about it - Ronnie James Dio is Dead.
If you didn't know he was the front-man for bands Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven and Hell. This sucks i was lookin' forward to a new Heaven and Hell album

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." -- Benjamin Franklin
Even though Dio was no replacement for Ozzy, I thought he did a pretty good job with black sabbath.
I still remember one of my buddies buying his "Holy Diver" album, this must have been sometime in 1984, 1985, 1986,,, somewhere in there. It was pretty good, but the music seemed a little too satanic for my taste. What can you really say about an album cover that shows satan throwing a priest into a lake, and the priest has chains on his arms and legs.
He did some very nice songs, in Dio, Black Sabbath and Heaven and Hell.
Pesonally i think i really like the album Eternal Idol which wasn't Ozzy or Dio, where the lead was Tony. Dio's best Sabbarh album has to be also the one titled Heaven and Hell
